Hosted by the University of the West of Scotland, this 2-day conference will be the first in-person National Associates’ conference since 2019 and will provide an opportunity for Associates to network, learn, be inspired and, most importantly come together.

Hosted by the UWS KTP Centre and based at our Paisley campus in the West of Scotland, the conference agenda has been developed based on community survey feedback from current KTP Associates across the UK. Although an in-person event, we plan on making use of emerging and enabling technology to maximise networking opportunities before, during and after the event and are finalising our own conference venue in the metaverse in support of this. This also provides a venue for virtual poster competitions and project showcasing and ties into one of the conference themes – Monetising the Metaverse. That said, the number one request from the community was for an in-person event with lots of networking opportunities, closely followed by inspiring stories and masterclasses spanning KTP project delivery, career planning and personal development, all delivered by KE professionals, sector leaders and current/former KTP associates.


Both days will be at the UWS Paisley Campus.
